TomTron (451) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Pours almost black with a little tannish head. Aroma has some dark roasted, almost burnt smelling malts, and some chocolate lingering in there. Tastes has some chocolate notes and some slight hop bitterness, with a watery mouthfeel afterwards. Rather thin for the most part, but still very drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 a good change off from my IPAs, both micro brewery ones and my own. lower ABV, quite refreshing(sounds so commercial) and unexpected from Guinness especially since I consider Guinness Draft the best beer ever made though an IPA lover....no other lager comes close, not even Yuengling Black and tan. OK I GOOFED..BORING AFTER AWHILE GOOD FOR 2 BEERS........
